Catching a second wind

Published: Thu, 08/22/13

Sweet and lovely 

How are you today? I can't believe how amazingly fast the week flew by and today I have a couple of important messages to share.

First - important update: a week from today  I will open up 20 spots again to conduct free one on one, hour-long, heart clarity calls where you and I get the opportunity to dig deep into what you're really looking for in an intimate relationship and what's preventing you from getting it.

The last time I offered these sessions, 50 spots were snagged in about a week and this time I only have time to conduct 20 of them (plus this email list has grown quite a bit) so if you're interested in getting a chance to connect with me one on one (for free) I highly encourage you to sign up the day enrollment for these sessions opens.

The second message I want to share is a bit more personal. 

I want to take a few moments to thank you from the bottom of my heart for making my dreams a reality. I feel like literally dropping to my knees in gratitude that I get to live the life I live. That I get to share my heart, my soul and my work with you.

You see, there was a time in my not too distant life when this community was just a faint idea in my heart. When I'd wake up at 5:30 every morning to exercise and go to work at a job that was not best use of my talents. 

I would then leave work at 6pm, connect with my family, have dinner and start working on my dream (aka my site) from about 9:00pm until 2am (only to repeat this process over again the next day).

I had a gigantic yearning to serve in a more consistent way but no idea how to make it work (financially) and frankly had some doubts that it would take off as immensely as it has by now. 

I felt stuck and upset at myself because I'd built a lifestyle that required a six figure income and now, with a big house, expensive cars, two kids, and high minimum expenses, I couldn't just 'wing it'.

I remember vividly sitting on my computer one night almost wanting to give up. I felt tired, frustrated, disappointed about my site's "progress" and was pondering why things were not fully clicking then. 

Money has never been my motivation for doing this site or this work, so the thing that pulled me out of that rut was YOU.

I received a few emails that same week about some inspiring breakthroughs from a couple of readers and felt such a strong sense of gratitude that something I shared was making a bit impact in their lives, that I caught a second wind. 

I saw a vision of what was possible and just knew in my gut that sooner or later it would happen for me.

Today, as I wake up every morning and get paid to do what I would actually pay to do (more than I was making at my 6-figure job but on my own terms and from anywhere in the world), I can't but feel an overwhelming sense of aliveness, gratitude, stillness and grounded knowing that any fear, discomfort, pain, frustration, that I've gone through has been absolutely worth it.

So, if you find yourself in a situation right now where you can't "fully see it", I want you to know that my heart is with you. Getting what you want might be infinitely closer than you can imagine. 

I want to invite you to reconnect with your why and continue giving life your all, it's the only thing that will make you feel sustainably fulfilled and alive.

I also want you to remember that there is an insane power in surrounding yourself with champions who can help you rise and encourage you on your journey. As much as I'd love to take credit for my privileged life there's no way I would have this daily experience if it weren't for several angels who've blessed my life with their encouragement, wisdom, love, support and companionship.

I'd even be willing to say that life only really works to the extent that you can cultivate amazing relationships.

There are so many online stars who've made a humongous difference in my life so I will name a few who've been in thoughts recently (providing links to their sites so you can get to know them too). I deeply apologize in advance because I know I am probably excluding some essential folks.

Srini Raos - You were the first person I met who had figure out what online influence was all about , took me under your wing and believed in me. I want you to know that I will be forever grateful. 

Doug Ulman - You were the first celebrity/hero who agreed to be interviewed for my show. I will never forget this.

Nichole Kellerman, this email list exists because of you, I will never be able to repay you for instilling in me the discipline to create a strong offering in order to engage and connect with a strong community of out-of-this-world awesome women.

Sally Hope - My dearest friend, I have no words to express my gratitude for your ability to  see talents in me before I fully saw them myself. I don't think you will ever know how much you mean to me and how much you have influenced my drive to do what I do.

Matthew Blom - My dear brother, you are my ambassador of flow and wealth, suffice it to say that you have taught me more about "how to make it" with integrity and heart than pretty much anyone else alive.

Mayi Carles - A conversation you and I had was the detonator that allowed me to make the move, burn the ships and start my business. You are my sister and my friend for life.

Ashley Ambirge - You are one of the most genuine human beings I've ever met and I feel beyond blessed to call you a friend. You've taught me so much about finding my voice that it's not even funny. You're also so alive. Love you so much!

Fabeku - Dear brother, I remember sitting in my office at my old job reading your morning facebook updates saying to myself : "one day I too will do absolutely just what I love"  You have taught me and  inspired me immensely.

Amanda Oaks - You were one of the first human beings to believe in my site and videos and I got a glimpse of greatness when I shared a few guest posts in your beautiful community: Kind Over Matter. To this date the video I shared about my dad has been one of the most personal I've ever recorded.

Jamie Wallace - You were my first twitter friend and have always supported my work so much. You are kind, generous and noble. I love you.

Kristine Carlson - Kris when I first interviewed you I was beyond thrilled that you would consider my humble blog as an avenue for  your message but I never in my wildest dreams expected you would become a friend for life. Thank you for your huge heart.

Rachel Luna - You have been such an amazing supporter of my work and I want you to know how much I appreciate your generosity and your kindness. You too are a sister and a true friend.

Rachael Kay Albers - From our very first Skype conversation your heart and enthusiasm for my work moved me so deeply and gave me hope. Thank you for believing in me, thank you for seeing greatness in me when I was just starting.

Sabrina Bolin - You have been an immense supporter and friend, please know that I am so grateful for you in my life.

Rachel Feldman - I can't think of anyone in my online community who has been as enthusiastic and encouraging with me as you have. Thank you so much for blessing me with your friendship.

Betsy Cross - You have been the most loyal supporter of my site way back when it didn't even have a clear voice. Thank you for sticking with me for so long.

Lauren Grace - You were the very first person to purchase "meaningful influence" - my very first online product. I will be eternally grateful that you invested in me.

Dave Ursillo - You've always been there for me and beyond the support you've offered me, you've been a true friend.

Syndee Stein - You just "get it" I admire you and believe in you. Thank you for being so generous with your heart, praise, support and friendship.

Tisha Lin - I am floored at how generous you've been in sharing my message with your community. I absolutely adore you and have the deepest sense of gratitude for your generosity and heart.

And I want to specially thank YOU, yes YOU, for being here and sharing your heart and your time with me. You make such a difference in my life.

Sending You Oceans of love,
